A special performance by April Renzella
Basic dog training demo by Lauren's Dog Training. Lauren has been working with and training dogs for the past 15 years. Here training is based on positive reinforcement and treats. The basis of here clients is puppy/basic obedience and problem solving. She is also a AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. Dog training is not always "dog" training, but for the most part "people" training. The goal is to get both parent and pet working together and enjoying their time with each other.
